Lynda Brannen Williamson Women’s Leadership AcademyPersonal leadership development program to improve career, mentoring, and service opportunities for women.

The Statesboro-based Lynda Brannen Williamson Foundation established the Women’s Leadership Academy in partnership with the Fanning Institute to encourage and prepare women to take leadership roles in Southeast Georgia.

The eight sessions address issues that women in leadership encounter and include an assessment of individual leadership styles, career development, work-life balance, and tools for effective leadership. Participants also meet with prominent local and state leaders.

The fifth year of the LBWF Women’s Leadership Academy in Statesboro began in September 2019. With financial support from Georgia Power, the academy has also started a class in Rome, Ga., which is set to wrap up in Oct. 2020.
